    beno soundo,

    totally agree. this one blew ‘em away.

    best in show. just not quite pretentious enough to win! the judges did not grasp the profundity of what transpires in this film.

    there is no transience in youth. as a state of mind it can be ageless.

    also, pissbomb.

    So great on so many levels. From Arnie to Dirty Harry and even harking back to Steve Austin,and boy and girl dynamic/relationships in Australian culture. I’m spreading the word. Well done all. How do we get a copy of the film and script? Will pay good money Cassadias! By the way what does Cassadias mean ? Rossco.
